Flowers Bursting Into Bloom

My back perennial garden is really starting to burst into bloom now. The Lilies are springing to life and the Carpet Roses have gotten big and beautiful with lots of cascading blooms.

Hanging baskets on my back porch filled with Cascade Geraniums and Vinca Vines. The butterfly ornament was purchased at a crafts fair last year.

Some Coreopsis that have just opened up. I love this flower, it is an easy grower, needs little water to look good and keeps the bright blooms coming all through the summer.

Up close and personal with some Lilies.

Some new yellow beauties that have just popped open.

View from my back porch of some of the Lilies.

The deep purple Clematis are still in bloom.

Some Purple Cone Flowers just starting to bloom.

My Lamb's Ear that just came into bloom last week.

The Hydrangeas have just opened and are still a very pale blue, green and white. It is always a pleasure to watch them change colors.

Your garden sure is a credit to you Ruth. I wish I was inspired to get back into our poor old neglected garden....maybe when the warmer weather comes
